Ship - Norwegian Epic

Deck - 12

Stateroom # - 12317

Stateroom Category – H6

Starboard or Port Side - Aft

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Fairly quiet. No noise from above. The only appreciable noise was the sound of the wake, but we loved it.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? Yes.

Balcony View - Gorgeous views off the aft of the ship. Great to watch the wake.

Balcony Size? The balcony was huge. It had two loungers, two chairs and a table.

 

Was wind a problem? Not that we noticed.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? Not at all.

Any specific problems with this cabin? The only issue I had personally is it was a bit of a challenge getting the shower/tub. I have short legs and it sits up a bit from the ground. There are handles so i was ok, but I don't think someone with any mobility issues would be able to negotiate it very well. My husband didn't care for the fact that the light in the toilet stall was on a motion detection system so any time there was any movement it would come on, but it didn't bother me.

Any other comments? Loved this room. Bed was huge and comfy. Room was big. Shower and tub in the same enclosure. Toilet in a different enclosure. Nespresso coffee maker - heaven! Table and two chairs in room as well. Bathroom had a scale (boo), q-tips and cotton balls, hair dryer, magnifying lighted mirror, shower poof and Bvlgari shampoo, body wash and lotion. Two robes in closet. TONS of storage. Cool little pull out things on either side of the bed (no side tables due to the layout). There was a dvd player under the counter. The light over the bed resembles a giant toilet seat (not a complaint, just an observation ;)).

Deck - 11

Stateroom # - 11510

Stateroom Category – MB

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – The room was generally quiet although not soundproof. You could hear some other cabins' doors slam shut, and noise when the cabin stewards were cleaning.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Not sure.

 

Balcony View - Balcony had full view, no obstructions. A bit of wear and tear and some paint peeling, but it didn't hinder use. The sliding doors stayed open without a bungee, and shut tightly.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal size balcony, nothing special. Room for 2 people to sit in upright chairs and a small table.

 

Was wind a problem? - Wind was not a problem for us on our Carribean itinerary. Some nights, we could hear the party from the pool deck if we had the door open.

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - We had no issues with this cabin, but we did run a white noise generator app at night. I did hear some door slamming, from time to time, but it wasn't enough to wake me or ruin my stay.

 

Any other comments? - The mini-suite had ample space and plenty of hangers for our 6 night cruise. We had brought magnetic wall hooks, which helped. The "hot shot" style coffee maker worked, as did the mini-fridge. Our steward emptied the mini-fridge before our arrival. A 15 foot extension cord was needed to use a CPAP next to the bed, since the only outlets in the bedroom area are at the desk. There were only 2 of us in the cabin and we had ample room. I wouldn't try for 4 in this one.

Stateroom Category – Balcony

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Could hear our neighbours talking loudly through the walls, also when their TV was loud. Sounds of the ship breaking through large waves were also obvious.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Great view from high up, looking forward you are looking through the support structure for the bridge. We could see the officers working on the bridge at times (they waved to our kids), so if you are in to that kind of thing it was neat. Still a great view.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No

 

Any other comments? - Cabin feels like a long way from most things. Food and drinks feel either very aft or very far down the elevators from this area of this ship (and they are). Still, a nice cabin and we enjoyed it. Just be prepared (and able) to walk distances.

Stateroom # - 9002

Stateroom Category – SE Forward Suite

Starboard or Port Side – N/A – only view is forward

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes, very quite

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? – No

 

Balcony View (Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue.) –Amazing views 180 degrees. Sunset and sunrise are the best. It was the best view for the Panama Canal Cruise.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? – Oversized with 2 loungers, 2 chairs and table.You can look up to the bridge from the balcony, they can see part of your balcony. When sailing at night you are required to keep the blinds shut (or white lights off) while using the balcony so you don’t hinder the view of the bridge. The partitions to the forward balconies are at an angle so it is easy for your neighbors to see you. This didn't bother us at all.

 

 

 

Was wind a problem? – At times but it seemed to depend on which direction we were going. Not as much of an issue as we used the balcony quite a bit.

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? – N/A

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? – The forward cabins have double doors, the second one being a metal door for very rough sea protection. If the doors are left open, the air conditioner stops working.

 

Any other comments? - Our concierge was great - made up for the poor service from the butler.

Would book this cabin location again. Only issue was hearing music till later at night since we went to bed early.

Stateroom # - 15122

Stateroom Category – Haven, Courtyard Penthouse

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very - this stateroom is near the stairs that go up to the Haven and the 'secret passage' hallway to the spa so we were a bit concerned about noise, but we had no issues at all other than occasionally hearing the neighbors slamming drawers shut the last night while they were packing.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - The door covering the minibar would not properly close so we rigged a fix by putting paper into it to block it closed. This was never fixed during the cruise although the butler did remark on it. We also had problems with the remote for the TV that were never addressed - but overall these were small issues.

 

Any other comments? - This was a great room location - quieter I think than the rooms on deck 16 right next to the Haven lounge and pool area, but so close to that staircase and spa that we were convenient to everything.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – NO foot traffic outside at all!! We were almost at the end of the hallway, going towards the bridge room, so did not have to hear any other passengers going past. ONLY noise we did here was a little 'sloshing' noise sometimes during the day. It seemed to be more in late morning for some reason. We were trying to figure out what it was & we think we may be underneath the Adult only hot tub or the Adult Pool?

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Yes, it connects to 11520, which I think is a mini-suite (looks about half the size of the suite we were in)

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – View was great, no obstructions. Life boats are deck below, so if looking down you will see them.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Size was a bit larger, 3 seats I think & one lounger? Don't really remember though, sorry!

 

Was wind a problem? - Never, unless I leaned over the railing quite a bit, then I got some wind in my hair.

Any specific problems with this cabin? -

Only couple of minor issues that kind of bugged us. One of the sinks in the main bathroom had a slow trickle of water from the faucet, we let them know & they said they had the part on order, so had to deal with that & I could kind of hear it at night, but I am a very light sleeper. I didn't like the fact that if someone was brushing their teeth or doing something in the main bathroom, they could see you sitting on the potty (as the toilet had a glass door)! Our 2 girls stayed in the small bedroom (it has a 2 person pull out bed/couch, which is large enough for 2 older teens) and has a pull down bunk too. Well if you close the door, it is locked from the outside, unless you use a key! So if they wondered out & the door shut in the middle of the night, we had to look for our card. Or if we wanted to check on them, we had to look for our card.

their bathroom was super small too, whereas ours was super big (too big). lol

Any other comments? - This was a great cabin, the bottom level of the suites, but comes with all the perks - butler etc. We loved that, so did our 12yr old twin girls! Cabin has decent sized living area with couch that seats about 3. Nice large flat screen TV there. Small table with 3-4 chairs by fridge & bar, cupboard with silverware, dishes, glasses etc. Nespresso machine. Girls room was decent size & they had their own small bathroom with shower, sink & toilet. Or bedroom had queen bed, TV and curtain for privacy. :)

Ship: Getaway

Deck: 14

Stateroom: 14166

Category: Spa mini suite

Starboard or Port side: Port

 

Was stateroom quiet?

Generally, yes. Although there did no appear to be many children on our sailing, we could hear the children in the room next door when our balcony door was open. We could also hear chairs being set out on deck above early in the morning and occasionally loud music.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? No.

 

Balcony view: No obstructions. Nice mid ship slightly closer to front of ship.

 

Balcony size: The balcony, like most others on the ship is small. They feel narrow. Based on reviews I had read, I was concerned about balcony size. It was not as bad as I had anticipated. The table is tiny.

 

Other: Being a mini suite, the only difference from a bacony stateroom is a larger bathroom with double sink and a fantastic shower. Very good location for spa and Vibe access. Carpet in room was worn. Drawer under couch was difficult to pull out. Bed is by closet, not balcony. Storage space is decent. Despite some occasional noise, we would be happy to have this stateroom again.

Stateroom # - 8066

Stateroom Category – Obstructed OS

Starboard or Port Side -

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – NO. Very loud. The walls creak constantly. Lots of audible hall noise due to sideways configuration. Can hear kids screaming on deck below from the window.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Odd configuration - hard to get two people dressed due to location of the closet and bathroom. The entire 8th floor of cabins smelled like sewerage from the hall.

 

Any other comments? - Great cruise but not a great cabin.

Ship - NCL Pride of America

Deck - 4

Stateroom # - 4510

Stateroom Category – Oceanview

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – No noise from adjacent cabins or the theater above. There is a service hallway entrance across the hall. We occasionally heard noise from carts being rolled through that entrance. The last night was noisiest because of luggage being collected.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - We didn't have a balcony, rather a window. The window was not clear due to salt spray and fogginess.

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Aside from the noise mentioned above, there are two pull down beds which, even when folded up, made getting into bed a little cumbersome.

 

Any other comments? - Short walk to the elevator, stairs and gangway.

Ship - NCL Star

Deck - 10

Stateroom # - 10010

Stateroom Category – BB

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Quiet.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – This cabin has an "enclosed" balcony which means the outside view is framed with steel. So the panorama is somewhat more restricted than a "normal" balcony. Was not an issue for us but the cruiser should be aware. We got this cabin on an upgrade bid and were notified that it was an "enclosed" balcony.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

 

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Cooling got weak mid-cruise but returned to normal by the end. Never a real issue but we did have the cooling cranked down to max for several days. This may have been more of a shipwide problem than a specific cabin problem. Never got warm enough to complain about.

 

Any other comments? We would sail in this cabin again. It is far forward which means no noise from the open atrium intrudes. And it is away from the elevators which is also a plus for those of us who like quiet.

Ship - Norwegian Getaway

Deck - 15 Haven

Stateroom # - 15106

Stateroom Category –

Starboard or Port Side -

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very, very quiet - this cabin is the next to last one forward on the deck, and the only cabin farther forward is a 2 bedroom villa. The walk is a little long, but not uncomfortably so, and the distance means that there is very little noise from other passengers in the hall, or closing doors etc.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Nothing exceptional about the view, although I was able to wave at one of the ship's officers in the bridge section that juts out from the side of the ship - and he waved back.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - normal - fit 2 chairs and a side table comfortably.

 

Was wind a problem? - Never

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - na

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No. The room was quiet and well appointed. Getting in and out of the tub was uncomfortable - it is not a walk in shower, but a traditional bathtub with a full raised side, slightly elevated above the floor such that when you stepped out, you needed to be mindful of the drop and hang on. If I were elderly or less limber, I might not have managed to get in and out without hurting myself. The bed was also odd - instead of using fitted sheets, Norwegian uses flat sheets and tucks them in, but our sheet kept coming untucked, and every morning I woke up on top of a bare mattress that showed some age. (That's a little nitpicky, but it was annoying.)

 

Any other comments? -The butler, Gary, was very helpful and kind.

Any other comments?Being an accessible cabin it was a great size, probably 50% larger than a regular one. The "Obstructed View" wasn't exactly obstructed, just the lower portion of the window - it was great! I had read to adjust the beds in a backwards L shape and highly recommend it! Makes it so much more roomy! This room is parallel to the starboard deck, not like 90% of the rooms on the ship. Since it was an accessible room the commode was raised and if you are 5'4" like me, or less, the it may be tricky lol. The room was close to the aft elevator and stairs, but not close enough to hear the elevators or passengers.
